A quick side note before we get into the news from Saturday's scrimmage. Over the last couple months I've mentioned the Pac-12 fantasy basketball tournament Jeff and I are in. Well, we are now in the final and today is the last day of voting.
Now, you might be thinking this is the third or fourth time I've asked for votes, why should you keep voting? Well, this week we face ConnorOSU, who despite being a nice guy, once made this comment on CougCenter:
Because God knows they wouldn't talk about our team if there wasn't a giant Cougar in the background.
Now, are you just going to sit there and let him win? I didn't think so, you can go vote here.
